This is a great option for patients missing most, or even all, of their natural teeth. Although complete dentures can be a lot to get used to, we can restore function and create a beautiful smile with complete dentures. While dentures take some time to get used to, and will never feel exactly the same as your natural teeth, today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable to wear than ever before.
Replacing missing teeth with dentures will improve the appearance of your smile. Without support from a denture, facial muscles sag, creating an aged appearance. Dentures also help you to speak and eat more comfortably. Removable partial dentures are an excellent option for patients who are missing several teeth, yet have a few healthy teeth remaining. We may recommend this option for patients who fit this profile. We also offer implant retained dentures for qualifying patients.
Taking care of your dentures
Brush your dentures: brushing dentures daily with a denture cleaner will remove food and dental plaque will help prevent them from becoming stained. Conventional toothpaste, bleach, vinegar, and soap are not designed to clean dentures and may even damage your dentures. Take care of your mouth: even though you don’t have teeth, it is still important to brush your gums, tongue, and palate every morning before you insert dentures to help maintain good oral health.
